Hat-trick at Euro 2016

Acting as lender’s technical advisor, we monitored the design and construction of three of the four new stadiums built for Euro 2016, the world’s second biggest football tournament.

Our teams provided due diligence and independent reviews of business plans, helping to bring each project to a successful commercial and financial close, on budget and on schedule.

We continue to monitor the operational and sustainability performance of all three stadiums: Parc Olympique Lyonnais in Lyons, Allianz Riviera Stadium in Nice and Matmut Atlantique in Bordeaux.

The €400M 59,000-seater Parc Olympique Lyonnais, since renamed the Groupama Stadium, is France’s first fully privately financed stadium.

We were involved in this project, alongside football club Olympique Lyonnais and its lenders, from the very beginning and played an instrumental role in making the deal bankable and securing the necessary financing.

Euro 2016 featured 51 games played at 10 locations and broke all records in terms of attendance and revenue.
